Volunteers at DABC are indispensable in our day-to-day operations. They answer phones, provide office support, coordinate and participate in mailouts, make deliveries, proofread our publications and record them on tape for people with visual impairments, represent us at information fairs and conferences and assist in fundraising activities.
In most cases, we need volunteers who can commit to a fixed schedule on a weekly basis or monthly basis. For example, a receptionist who can volunteer every Monday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm or a mailout team member for Transition Magazine who can come in 4 times a year for 4 to 6 hours each time.
When recruiting volunteers, priority will be given to people with disabilities. Training will be provided and all volunteers have a 3-month trial period. This allows us and the volunteer to see if we are a good “fit.”
Please send us your resume, including your availability if possible, to Val Stapleton, Volunteer Coordinator:
We may not have volunteer position available at all times. However, we do keep a waiting list and will contact potential candidates should we have any openings.
This Fund was established in memory of one of the founders of DABC, Mary Williams. Mary contributed to DABC in many ways over her 25 years with the organization. And she saw our volunteers as the heart of our organization.
The Mary Williams Core Volunteer Fund accepts donations to cover costs associated with our volunteering program. Please contact Nicole at 604-875-0188.
